Biography

You may not have heard of the JACKSON STREET POLECATS. This is not unusual and you should feel no self-reproach. They are, however, a potential source of great joy for you and your loved-ones.

Wielding kitchen utensils, stringed instruments of all sorts, and the voices which are their inheritance from birth, the POLECATS explore the TRAGIC and COMEDIC. At times REFLECTIVE, at others, displaying the subtlety of an over-caffienated RHINOCEROS, these young citizens continually dredge the murky shoals of MUSICAL TRADITION while giving release to COMPLEX IDEAS and EMOTIONS all their own.

If you, the MUSICAL ENTHUSIAST, should choose to employ the JACKSON STREET POLECATS, your reputation as a PERSON OF EXCELLENT TASTE will be forever cemented in your community.

Not only will the performance of these musicians benefit you personally, THE PERFORMANCE will bring joy and a SPIRIT OF GOODWILL to all present. In short, the music of these young men is AN EXPERINCE NOT TO BE MISSED!

warmest regards,
the JACKSON STREET POLECATS

Set List

The Polecats typically play a mix of original numbers and 1920's-40's vintage material including early jug-band tunes, old ballads, country-blues, novelty, and occasional rock and heavy metal chestnuts which somehow remain true to their roots even after translation to the ukulele.

Shows range from 1 to 3 hours. Generally, the Polecats take a 15 minute set break.
